One Does Not Need To Read The Educative Books Of The Learned People! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

If any person comes to understand and acts wisely
…to come forward to remove the suffering of the others,

Not making fun of other peoples' misfortunes whatever,
…not to be in acquaintance with people of low caliber,

To extend help to the people who are devoid of food,
…he himself to be restrained from the undeserving activity,

And to speak the pleasing words to the people
…to whom he meets and moves in day to day life,

He does not need to read the educative books of the
...learned and excelled people who left the worldly desire!
